Moisturizers - SKINFOOD - Avocado Rich Cream

According to the website this is a cream that you apply to your face after lotion and press in with the palm of your hand? I don't know...

It smells like fake apples and soap. Its kinda greasy in that it leaves your face with a bit of a shine to it. It absorbs quickly but leaves your skin feeling tacky.

Is it moisturizing? Not anymore than your average facial …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyebrow Cake Powder - Taupe/Ash

Aug/08/2012

I would repurchase this product unless I find something better in the meantime.

The problem for me is that my hair is brown but my eyebrows are more of an ash light brown. Most of the time when I use a brown brow pencil its too warm and my brows look reddish. Most brown pencils also tend to be too dark as my skin is quite pale.

So far, in terms of colouring this product has …

Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - Full Coverage Concealer Jar - Yellow

Aug/03/2012

I was really disappointed with this product. I found it gave minimal coverage at best.

This product definitely glides on. Its smooth but it doesn't counter my very dark purple areas. A little to much blending and this product disappears off my skin but remains settled in any lines and pores.

Its very light in colour. I have very pale skin and very dark areas under my …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Mecca Cosmetica - To Save Face SPF 30+ Hydrating Facial Sunscreen

Aug/02/2012

I suffer from cystic acne (which is more or less under control these days). I need to use sunscreen everyday especially since I live in Australia.

When I was looking for a sunscreen, I was really scared of picking one that would cause me to break out, I didn't want to end up with a white cast and I wanted something that would absorbs really fast.

This sunscreen is …

Aug/02/2012

I use an organic/natural shampoo all month long but I have incorporated this shampoo into my routine about twice a month.

I love organic but when I use hair products my hair starts to seem a bit heavy after a while.. I wanted something that would really clarify my hair and this does the trick.

I used to use redkin products religiously but my hair became dry, frizzy, dull and …

Mascara - Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara

Jul/22/2012

A lot of people are saying this mascara doesn't dry but what I find is that this mascara doesn't have a stiff plastic feeling like many other mascaras. It doesn't remain wet, in the sense that if you touch it 10 minutes after applying it transfers to your finger. it does dry but it can still be easily removed. You can gently pull on your lashes it will just come off.

For …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Mascara

Jul/22/2012

I find this to be a simple everyday mascara. It applies easily and gives a clean finish. Its not waterproof but it lasts all day at work and doesn't flake.

It doesn't extend or thickness lashes so much, it just emphasizes the lashes you already have. I think this makes it a good everyday mascara if you want more of a clean, natural look.

My organic make-up removes …

Foundations - Everyday Minerals - Jojoba Base

Jul/22/2012

I had previously used a glo base as well as a semi-matte base. This is definitely my favorite. I have it in natural ivory and it goes perfectly with my fair skin with pink undertones.

It doesn't look cakey and gives my skin an instant glow. It blends into my skin really well and looks like I'm not wearing foundation at all.

I don't find it very buildable so a …

I like this product but not for the price. I have been using this moisturizer every day for over a month now.

Good

- absorbs quickly, very light
- stops most of my skin drying out in the winter

Bad
- don't like the speckles of who-knows-what that float in the cream
- i have really dry knees …

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original

Jul/17/2012

This is only the second eye primer I have used.

My eyeshadow definitely looks richer with this primer underneath when I apply it, however, it doesn't last all day. After about 6 hours its almost all gone.

I will not be buying this product again only because I have realised that my eyelids are quite oily and I need something with more staying power. I would like …
